I sit and think
about the way things are
you try to change them
goals seem so far

We all wish
we could change one thing
do one thing different
see what it would bring

But what we do not see
is that it's all been planned
by the one who knows best
who made sky and sand

Once you learn this
out of new eyes you will see
sometimes we dont know best
but the best will always be

We have the ultimate choice
of making dreams come true
of taking control of our lives
but please be true to you

All we can do
is give it our best
if that is done
we can feel free to rest

Whatever happens to us
from beginning to end
all has a purpose
so no worries, my friend

Because worry wont change it
wont help you decide
just focus on living
and enjoy lifes' big ride

Life is what you make of it... Not what you let it be

Well, I didn't used to believe in fate, but recent events have me rethinking that stance!
Good portrayal, though I thin kI could think of more than one thing I'd like to change!

Thank you Dragoness and Christopher, your comments are much appreciated. I do believe everything happens for a reason whether we are able to see it or not, sometimes we are not meant to understand, but only to become wiser by looking at all the different possibilities.
